Time for the overclocking. 1.35 V and higher voltages can cause serious problems for Coffee Lake CPUs because of the TIM used under the heat spreader. Luckily, the 9th generation uses solder again. Our Core i9 9900K was set to 5000 MHz, at 1.35 volts. Again, wPrime 2.10 (3 times, 1024 M) was used. 




The temps shouldn’t go beyond 90°C, as otherwise, the CPU might degrade and also throttling can occur (especially applicable to the AMD Ryzen range, which normally operates at lower temperatures). AIO coolers usually perform well with our Core i9 9900K. The Lian Li Galahad 360 is not an exception. Let’s try to push the voltage beyond the 1.35 V mark.

There are four stages for the charts below:

  • Default
  • 5.0 GHz @ 1.35 V
  • 5.0 GHz @ 1.4 V
  • 5.0 GHz @ 1.45 V



The Lian Li Galahad 360 managed to keep the CPU temperatures under control until 1.45 V. The final result is nice considering the size of the radiator (but keep in mind that it’s a 360, usually the biggest variant that of manufacturers offer).
